Nello Bartolini was an Italian distance runner who came to the fore in the mid-1920s and was a serious rival to Ernesto Ambrosini and Giuseppe Lippi. He won five Italian titles in the 3,000 meter steeplechase (1926-27, 1931-32, 1934), and also set a national record of 9:23.2 in Firenze on 21 April 1932 that lasted for 26 years, until September 1958. He also won a national title at 5,000 metres in 1930.
Internationally, Bartolini competed twice at the Olympic Games, in 1928 and 1932. In 1934 he placed seventh at the European Championships in Torino in the 5,000 metres. Between 1928-1934, he was capped nine times for Italy.
Personal Best: 3,000S – 9:23.2 (1932); 5,000 – 15:19.8 (1932).
